Hindquarter Weakness

2006 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Betsy Iole
My 8 month old bassett has always seemed a bit week in his hind quarters. I wondered if this normal and will change as he matures? When he awakes in the morning he seems to limp slightly and frogs out to stretch. Once he is up and moving he runs without any noticable problem.

Young dogs sometimes go through temporary periods of incoordination or clumsiness, as they grow. If the problem is pronounced or seems to be getting worse, best to have him checked by your vet.
